It does work, even for those who don’t believe. We are all children of our Heavenly Father, and can receive blessings when we follow His laws, because He loves all of us. Those who believe follow His law more closely than those who do not, but even following the law blindly leads to blessings. Charitable people who give unstintingly toward relieving the suffering of their neighbors will receive the same blessings, whether they believe in Him or not. The blessings will be tailored to each person, because He knows each of our unique needs, but He loves those who love His children, even if they don’t know Him. We worship a Father who loves all of us, unconditionally and without reservations.

To God, all things are spiritual, and if we are following Him, then we need to see the spiritual in everything we do and say. The government doesn’t have to conform to that ideal and no one is saying we need to live in a theocracy, but the individuals in our country who do will bring about the change we need in order to survive as a nation.

I don’t think smuggling was what he had in mind. He’s not going to do it in the dead of night, but in broad daylight, with cameras rolling and several hundred people with him. He seems to want to draw attention to the duplicity of our governmental policies, and a civil disobedience act is an old established way to accomplish that. Like refusing to move to the back of the bus, but with getting yourself wet in the process.

I’m on a MacBook Pro, and had huge problems using Chrome. Constant plugin crashes. Switched to Safari and the problem went away. Try changing to Firefox or some other PC browser. And I run 4 different adblock plugins. Never get any ads on the Blaze, or anywhere else, for that matter.

You really need to get your facts straight. Mormons do not believe in the Trinity because the Church established by Jesus didn’t believe in it. Trinitarianism didn’t show up until three hundred years after Christ. It’s not biblical, and is a product of Greek Gnosticism.
Mormons do believe that Christ was fully human and the Son of God. He said He was, and we believe Him.
God is a title, not a name. The Father, Son and Holy Ghost are three separate personages (as evidenced several times in the scriptures), but form one God. To believe that They are one being in three different manifestations is Trinitarian (see above.)
Mormons believe in Christ, that He died and arose on the third day, look to Him only for their salvation, and believe He will come again in glory.
Try reading the Book of Mormon: Another Testament of Jesus Christ. It talks about Him more than the New Testament does. Mormons are most definitely Christians.
bluegrandma52 - Is it true Mormons believe +Jesus+ and Lucifer are brothers.
Will any Mormon answer this question -
1.) Do Mormons believe +Jesus+ and Lucifer are brothers.

Have you ever actually spoken to a Mormon about his/her beliefs? Have you read the Book of Mormon? Were you aware that the official name is “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints? (Latter-day to distinguish them from the Church of Jesus Christ that Jesus originally established). Were you also aware that Jesus Christ/God is named more in the Book of Mormon (every 1.7 verses, on average) than the New Testament (every 2.4 verses, on average)? The subtitle of the Book of Mormon is “Another Testament of Jesus Christ”. Mormons believe in Christ, we preach of Christ, we look to Christ for our salvation. His is the only name that can save us. Christ is the Head of our Church, and He has called prophets to lead His people, and Apostles to act as His witnesses throughout the world, just as He did when He set up His Church in Jerusalem 2000 years ago.
Members of the LDS Church are most definitely Christian. We love Christ, we worship Him, we believe in Him as our Savior, Redeemer and King. Try talking to one of us. You might be surprised at how Christ-centered we are.
2 Nephi 25:26 And we talk of Christ, we rejoice in Christ, we preach of Christ, we prophesy of Christ, and we write according to our prophecies, that our children may know to what source they may look for a remission of their sins.

Allah doesn’t affect me. I couldn’t care less about him/her/it. It’s the followers of Allah who are trying to wipe out everyone that doesn’t believe exactly as they do that concern me. Not all Muslims do this, but a significant percentage of them do. That affects me, and everyone else.

If the community the patrol cars served was OK with any of those, that would be fine. Apparently, this community agrees with what’s on their patrol cars. Sheriffs only answer to the people who elected them. Not even the governor can tell them what to do in their own counties, as long as they are enforcing the law.

The 1st Amendment clearly states that “Congress” shall not establish a national (state) religion. The 10th states “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.” Establishing a state religion is prohibited to the federal government, so that power is reserved for the States, or the people.
Most state constitutions prohibit that state from establishing a state religion as well, so that power devolves to the people. We can establish our own religions, practice one that’s already been around a while, or not practice a religion at all.
Placing “IN GOD WE TRUST” on the back of a patrol car is not establishing a religion, nor is it forcing any individual to practice a religion. It is a community of people deciding to place a declaration of faith in public view. Communities can establish religions if they wish, even though that isn’t what’s happening here.
Not so hard to understand. Unless you’re a liberal lawyer, or just a liberal.
Opening a church is a community of people declaring their faith. Placing a religiously themed decal on a police car is a act of government intended to promote a religious belief. . .

If there had been a way to diagnose homosexuality in the womb, she would have been for that as well. Any behavior that didn’t advance her idea of the ‘perfect’ society was fair game for elimination.

I guess you also missed the full videos posted on the Internet the same day the edited versions were sent to the severely attention-span deficient reporters. They all show the same thing–murdered babies for sale to the highest bidder.

It’s their religion, the bloody sacrament of evil. Yes, they will cling to it to the bitter end, because they have sold their souls.

There is nothing PP does (other than abortions) that can’t be, and isn’t already, being done by community health centers, pharmacies, free clinics and charitable organizations. CHCs alone outnumber PP slaughterhouses 10 to 1, provide many more useful services to women, men and children, and are devoted to actually helping the poor, rather than exploiting them. Take the money being poured down the PP rat hole and give it to these other healthcare providers. There would be a lot more good done in the world.

Fetus is one stage of gestation. To simply refer to all unborn babies as fetuses is incorrect, and leads to the murder for hire mentality we have now. Human babies, even before they are born, have historically been called “babies”.
Just like marriages in Vegas and Hollywood with straight folks

That is not strictly true. Temple sealings are reserved for worthy members only. Adult LDS priesthood holders, such as bishops, can, and do, perform marriages between men and women who want to be married in a Christian non-denominational wedding. LDS chaplains in the military will even perform Jewish and other non-Christian marriages if there is not a chaplain of that faith available. They will not, however, perform same-sex marriages.

Roberts is compromised…the administration has something on him, and there was a hint about a payoff in the footnote to one of the dissenting opinions. The two females on the bench should have recused themselves, as their opinions were biased from the start. The Court can’t be trusted with giving an accurate weather report when they’re standing out in the rain.

“The only religious groups who are against same sex marriage are evangelicals and some black denominations (Southern Baptist)”. Wrong. The LDS Church is against it, the Catholic Church is against it, and some other Baptist churches and Orthodox Jews are not behind it either. Quite a large group of ‘no’ votes there.
